  1. OpenAL

    OpenAL 2.1.0.0 extracted from a Creative driver installer. This is an official update and is newer than the version on Creative's site.
     
    Games that include OpenAL32.dll will not use the updated file unless you delete or replace the game's own version to make it see the new one instead.

  4. Gothic and Gothic II fullscreen fixes

    This fixes the following issues with Gothic and Gothic II on Windows 8 and later:
    Window border visible in fullscreen mode
    Low frame rate in fullscreen mode

    Extract anywhere and run install.bat to apply these fixes. Any previous versions are automatically replaced if present.
     
    This works by applying the following compatibility fixes to Gothic.exe, Gothic2.exe and GothicMod.exe:
    ForceSimpleWindow (hides window border)
    DXPrimaryEmulation -DisableMaxWindowedMode (fixes frame rate isssues)

    This fix does not remove Gothic's default frame rate cap; refer to its page for a separate fix for that issue.
     
    This fix will also work with Gothic Multiplayer (other mods that change the executable might not be affected).
